Let's start with no one was available to greet us for several minutes. We are then seated & met our server. She was like grandma with a bad attitude (seems that the grandkids/guest of the restaurant had gotten on her nerves way before we arrived.) Requested a lovely vodka called Ciroc. She had to go find out if they had... More

Was looking for a good meal before going to late show at Bluebird Cafe...what a find! Decor was eclectic to put in mildly. Food was good & reasonably priced. One of the appetizers was a culinary delight...try the white cheddar & goat cheese mac...it was to die for! Half smoked chicken entree was wonderful also.

Traveling solo for work and wanted a local experience for dinner. 5 min walk from Courtyard in Greenhills area of Nashville( near Mall). Decor is super unique. So many eclectic decorations in this restaurant- it's like every holiday is celebrated, everyday. Food and Bev- hand written menus that seem to rotate by season. Firefly uses local provisions. I had the... More

This restaurant is located in the Green Hills section near the mall. The decor is very funky- mismatched chairs, Christmas lights. Food is quite good and is either a little " exotic" or All American like grilled cheese. We loved it. The prices are very reasonable and the atmosphere is low key.

I ate here 2 nights in a row (something I never do) while in Nashville for a pharmacy seminar. It is in the Green Hills area and is on a back street behind the mall and one block over from new shops in an open air concept. Easy to miss. BUT DON'T!! Great small ecclectic, intimate setting. Food and drinks... More

In town for a business conference and brought a group of colleagues for dinner. The owners opened the door when we got out of our Ubers to welcome us! We had a great table where we could talk and really enjoy ourselves. The wine list and bar menu were not overwhelming and the grapefruit fizz drink I had was refreshing.... More

I met out of town friends here this week and the food and service was great. We got the "Airline Chicken" and I hate every bite. I think their menu may change often. It was different from the last time I was there. They also have a different lunch menu. Desserts are awesome. I highly recommend the fudge cake that... More

The service was pretty poor. We felt like the venue was a little run down. Overall the food was pretty good, it just did not warrant the rave reviews. The pork chops tasted great, but the other dishes were just ok. There are better places to eat in Nashville.

Firefly Grille was opened in the Spring of 2001 by Curt Cole, a born and raised Nashvillian, experienced restauranteur, and family man. Firefly is Curt's answer to Nashville's need for a restaurant providing high quality, sophisticated cuisine, without the fuss of the traditional fine dining experience. (Imagine wearing jeans and a t-shirt while eating a high quality filet...Isn't that the dream?) So, Firefly was born-a funky, cozy, and casual neighborhood restaurant, providing an eclectic, worldly, seasonally-changing menu with a southern twist. Firefly Grille uses high quality ingredients to create unique dishes, sourcing locally whenever possible. Located in the heart of Green Hills on Bandywood Drive, Firefly is about 300 yards away from the famous Bluebird Cafe, as well as a wide array of Nashville's finest local favorites. For fifteen years, Firefly has remained a local secret, voted "Best Neighborhood Restaurant" by the Nashville Scene twice.
